Zoo Trip!

Last weekend, the last weekend of January, the temperature was in the mid-60s, so we headed outdoors to the zoo. We had a great time! Our morning started off with homemade blueberry and cherry pancakes, then the zoo, then frozen yogurt, then lunch by the water at The Depot in Helena. Avery fell asleep in the car after lunch on the way home for a nap. It was a great day!

Her favorite area of the zoo has always been the Petting Zoo area. However, this winter and since it's been cold, there haven't been any animals out in the petting area. But, today, it was full of goats! She also realized that there were plastic rakes that she could play with, so that stole most of her attention.
Trying to get her to look at me and smile. Didn't happen.
Ok, this picture is tricky. Look closely. The goat and Avery are looking at each others' faces at eye level. Yes, she kissed that goat right on the mouth!
We have had our bouts with corners and the such. She can't seem to keep the puffy lips, scabs, and bruises away from her little mouth. This isn't the best picture, but her little mouth actually looks the best it's looked in a while! Only one tiny scab right above her top lip.
Washing her hands at the washing station after playing with the goats. She's getting so big...she can actually reach the water by herself now! No more lifting and hoisting!
